Bakuon! -- ep 10

Lime wins the cheesecake award for this episode with this eyecatch

I just noticed that Rin is Zettai Ryouki grade A. I went back and checked the earlier episodes and she always was, but I never noticed before. (Wonder why?) Actually, the tropes page for Zettai Ryouki says that there's a Grade S: thigh high socks plus tsundere plus twintails, so Rin qualifies. Seems to me that she really should be S+ because she's got all that and she's blonde and stacked.

The bikers twintail club! One of these things is not like the other...

Anyway, the episode? It's about Chisame. She still sucks the light out of every scene she's in and she cries at least three times, but we're making progress. She has joined the bike club. She wants to get a license, and her dad has offered to buy her a bike, though the one he suggested isn't appropriate because it's too big for her.

Meanwhile, Hijiri has turned 16 and she wants her license, too. So Hijiri and Chisame are going to the same school that Rin and Hane went to, but Chisame isn't learning anything. Her father is a famous GP racer and Chisame herself has a rep as a mini-bike racer, and all the teachers assume she already knows everything so they won't teach her. Finally she confesses in tears to Hijiri that she wants to learn, and Hijiri promises to teach her, and that's next episode. I hope.

1 Oddly enough, I liked Chisame's behavior. The contrast highlighted the personalities of the other girls, and gave Hijiri a chance for much-needed character growth. Pity that her cheesecake shot was marred by springs, though.

2 Lime has the Sonico problem:  the inside of that helmet must reek.  Other than that, I'll take Lime over Rin any day.  But I haven't watched the "bike-wash" episode yet, either.

3 Ben, we don't think about things like that; that way lies insanity.
